However, Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil attacked the government for failing to address the problems of the farmers following demonetisation. Patil said, “The government claimed they have addressed corruption and have got adequate funds. But what about giving crop loans to the farmers?”

The opposition leader said, “The government appears to have made promises on several issues which remained on paper. Whether it was giving reservation to Marathas or Dhangars, they have not been able to take the issue ahead.

Fadnavis said, “The Opposition appears to be living in a make-believe world. They are not trying to acknowledge the support from people in our fight against corruption.”

Earlier, in the state Assembly NCP leader Jayant Patil urged the chief minister to take stern measures to tackle the problems of law and order.
